   Six books. That all it takes.  Studies show that when a child reads as few as six appropriately grade leveled books, he is likely to fend off summer reading loss and maintain the reading progress made during the year.  And when a child reads more - 8, 10, or more books - he may even return to school a more confident reader.  To ensure confident readers in grades 4-8 at Sacred Heart School, books are assigned to be read during the summer. But there’s another reason to take the family to the library too, not only for these books but just for the fun of it!  Have fun!!

3.  This is not a summary of the novel, rather, a news article based on the reporter’s WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHY and HOW of ONE experience of ONE of the characters.  Your feature story must be at least one column long. Then add a picture with a caption to illustrate the feature story.     

4.  Also include in your paper:

         *a social note based on a party, birth, death or other event of note

         *an ad and a picture for a fashion described or desired in the book


*an interview with ONE minor character asking about his views on  a major event in the story
